Liked: Well, location is great. 5 minute walk and you're to restaurants and the beginnings of the city centre. Having a bar is cool, provides a good atmosphere. The staff were all REALLY nice and helpful. Breakfast is delicious and actually balanced (fruit, hard boiled eggs, toast, cereal). They also offer towels only for deposit which is nice. and they rent out laptops! How cool. Now to the rooms. Bathroom and shower in the room which is a plus. Super clean the WHOLE time. Bed was comfortable and warm. Individual lights and plugs for each bed, lockers, and lockable underbed storage. Felt really safe (luggage goes in a locker for storage instead of a big room) besides one thing which I'll say below.

Disliked: This hostel was perfect, but be warned that Amsterdam is a big city which attracts a lot if tourists good and bad. That being said, in the middle of the night a guy came into our room with a flashlight and shined it in a few peoples faces. I woke up a little dazed and then I realized he was looking through my stuff! When I got up he bolted out of the room. I looked around and everyone in our room was inside and asleep. I don't know if he knicked the key, the door was left open, or what. But be aware that this can happen even in a really safe hostel like Flying Pig! I did notify someone however, there isn't much they can do.. Hostels are not usually liable for that sort of thing!

Thank you very much for your extensive review! We are very happy to hear how much you enjoyed the hostel! We are sad to hear what happened with this guy walking into your room though! We take our security very seriously and without a key card no one is to enter the hostel or any room. We are sorry to hear that somehow there was an uninvited person in your room, and happy about the fact that it didn't affect your stay too much. Please stay with us again some time! - The Flying Pig Uptown

Liked: The staffs are friendly, it's a very good atmosphere, and the room is big and clean.

Disliked: I had problems with lights in my room and they didn't fix it, I just wish they've been more attentive. In case you want to have more calm places to rest this may be not the best options since the bar is opened until 3 am every day.

Liked: Good atmosphere, really friendly/helpful staff - they are all travelers themselves, good location, easy to meet people, pretty decent free breakfast

Disliked: Staying on the fourth floor which is really like the sixth floor! So many stairs. But that's just how the houses are in Amsterdam so can't really complain!

Hi, thank you for your review. We try to encourage guests to be respectful with the amount of noise they make in dorm rooms but it can be difficult with certain groups. If there are noisy/partying guests in dorms the staff will gladly come and speak to them and explain that it is not acceptable. Stay with us again soon! Cheers - The Flying Pig Uptown
